George Billings Robinson

1916 ~ 2007

George Billings Robinson, 91, passed peacefully from this life on August 19, 2007. He was a husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, good friend to many and was loved by his family. George was born April 27, 1916 in Provo, Utah to J. William Robinson and Emily Deborah Billings Robinson. He married Flo Ellerton Robinson on September 21, 1938. They were later sealed to each other for time and eternity in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on August 30, 1957. He has now joined his beloved Flo who preceded him in death in Dec. of 2002.

George was a First Lieutenant in the U.S. Army during World War II and was stationed in the Aleutian Islands. He spent the majority of his working career as an officer at the Title Insurance Agency of Utah. He retired in 1981, and with his wife Flo, enjoyed many adventures in their motor home as they traveled throughout the western United States and Canada with their many friends. They also found time to travel to Europe and the Far East and enjoyed the friendship, opportunities and challenges afforded to them through these trips. They enjoyed golf and were former members of Willow Creek Country Club. He was blessed to have the companionship of many lifetime friends through bridge, dinner, and dance clubs and to be able to share these experiences with Flo. He was an active member of the LDS Church and served many organizations. One of his greatest joys was the simple virtue of serving as a frequent patron at the temple.

George is survived by their three children: Michael G. Robinson

(Suzanne Elliott) Chesterfield, Missouri; Reed Robinson (Theresa

Martinez) Salt Lake; Lisa Ann Moffat (Kayle) Medford, Oregon; and nine grandchildren: Gregory Robinson (Nancy); Heather Macy (Bill); Lessa Gillespie (Edgel); Bart Robinson

(Dana); Kathryn Butler (Mark);

Michael, Annie, Chase, and Megan Moffat; and 12 great-grand-children. His brother-in-law Keith J. Ellertson (Elaine Grover) also survives George. He was preceded in death by his loving wife Flo, his parents, three brothers and two sisters.

The family wishes to thank the staff at the Legacy Independent Living Center and the Sandy Regional Health Center for their loving care and treatment of George. He always had positive things to say about the many people who assisted him during these past years. They also wish to thank family and friends who continued to visit and support George.
